Become Nothing

by Colin Oliver

Original Language English

(After Ansari)

Who walks on water
is no better than a straw.
Who flies in the air
is no better than a fly.
Be without equal:
become nothing.
Find the real self
where no self exists.
The heart resigns
and the eye sees
nothing but God.

-- from Stepping Into Brilliant Air, by Colin Oliver
